Tourism and Hospitality education promotion at the MATKA18 Travel fair 18.- 21.1.2018

Tourism is still one of the fastest growing industries in the world. UN's tourism organization UNWTO has estimated one-night journeys and longer to increase to 1,8 billion by 2030. Businesses in the tourism sector are set up at a record rate, so new professionals in tourism and hospitality are desperately needed.

In addition to the restaurant and the hotel sector, education is offered in the tourism sector, which offers a wide range of job opportunities both in Finland and internationally. In the capital area, tourism and hospitality education is offered by Universities of Applied Sciences, Haaga-Helia and Laurea. After an UAS degree, there is an opportunity to continue with a Master’s degree, which allows for working in higher managerial positions.

For the first time at Matka Travel fair, Haaga-Helia and Laurea join forces to promote tourism education, our stand location is 6s71 . The stand is mainly designed and activities organized by students. There is information about education but also lots of fun! Get to know students, already graduated professionals and participate in a raffle where you can win huge prizes!
